Shake the dust off those dreams! Don't let them fall along the wayside. Make space for your dreams. Barbara Sher says that isolation is the dream and while it's important to have friends who support your dream, we need to make space for our dreams.
Look around your room, your apartment, or your house. Is there a junk corner? Does the kitchen counter get piled with old mail (like my kitchen table)? Is there a bookshelf that isn't getting used? Is there a filing cabinet drawer that's empty? What about the fridge?
What I want you to do is make a space for your dream. Not sure exactly what that dream is? Then make space for your interests instead. The visual reminder of a small creativity alter - yes I said alter - will keep your dreams on the surface of your thoughts or at least in the back of you mind.
Perhaps right now you are looking around your house and can't find a single space to set up a creative space or a dream alter. Then turn that junk drawer into a dream drawer. You weren't using the junk drawer for anything useful anyway. Or buy a photo box. What's important is that you have space for your dream!
- Find a place to set up a dream alter, creative space, or joy nest
- Gather objects that remind you of your dream
- Add a new item or look at the items each week
This is a simple exercise that will be like planting a seed. Each day you notice the dream space, your dreams and joys will grow. It's just one step in deciding to matter!
